GAZA (Reuters) - Israel plans to halt its Gaza offensive without any deal with Hamas, an Israeli official said on Saturday, in an apparent effort to deny the Islamist group any gains from the three-week-old conflict.
Hamas leaders in exile have vowed to fight on, but many of the 1.5 million Palestinians enduring incessant bombardment and privation in Gaza seemed desperate for their ordeal to end.
"The goal is to announce, subject to cabinet approval, a suspension of military activities because we believe our goals have been attained," said the official, asking not to be named.
Israel launched air strikes on the Gaza Strip on December 27 and ground troops pushed in a week later.
LINKYMay the FORCE be with you!

Israel needs to turn Gaza into a parking lot, kick out the HAMAStinians and send them packing.
If the other Arab states are that concerned, let THEM give them a State

And I love the CNN Quick Vote question.
"Do you think the conflict in Gaza is nearing its end?"
At present there are 11% of people who are incredibly stupid.
Hamas must be running REAL low on ammo.May the FORCE be with you!

Sic Hacer Pace, Para Bellum.
Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
